How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is based on ‘like cures like’. The remedy contains very diluted quantities of plant, animal or mineral substances that are refined and transformed into remedies with remarkable restorative properties. The remedy contains the “energy” of the substance and this stimulates the body’s own natural healing forces to alleviate the symptoms and bring about a return to health.
Homeopathic principles should be applied when using this remedy. Always read the product label. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner or vet promptly.
